There’s not much more I love in life than being right. Maybe cats. And carbs. But mostly being right. And I was totally right in my last tarot post.
The Chooks DID have a shit of a week. Though it’s unfortunate the cards failed to warn me about the rage that would come out of Sassy as a result of this.
The Panthers DID ride home with a victory, over the Manly Sea Eagles who DID fall down under the burden of being reigning NRL and World Club champions.
The Tigers DID see a W*. Ok so I took that back in the original post, but let’s go by my first instincts. Like when I hate someone upon first meeting, but then they do something great and I change my mind about their shitness, and then they go back to being shit and I’m all I KNEW I WAS RIGHT THE FIRST TIME. I should never ignore my gut feelings. They’re not always just telling me I’m hungry.
The Dragons DID keep the faith and have an awes win at Kogarah. Unforch they ignored my suggestion to ride onto the field on horses dressed as dragons. Whatever, maybe they’re saving it for later in the season.
Point is, it’s time for another tarot post. Yes I know it’s Friday and Round 6 starts tonight, and this doesn’t leave a lot of time for the NRL to send out memos to all the teams outlining my advice, but let’s see what I pulled (tee hee) this week anyway:
Broncos – Queen of Wands – This lady is like, that girl in the room who everyone wants to talk to. So I have no idea why the Broncos got this card, coz we all know no one wants to talk to Queenslanders.
Ok I’m sorry. This is probably saying they should be self-assured, confident and basically happy little footy-playing vegemites.
Dragons – 3 of Cups – CUTE! The Dragons are all BFF-y and adorable. They just LOVE! LIFE! And they may just get to celebrate together again this week. If not, well at least they have their love for each other. Thankyou for being a friiiiend.
Roosters – Strength – Sassy! Brett Oaten! This is…wait for it…a good card. I KNOW, RIGHT? I can’t believe it either. Basically the chookies have, or should have, all kinds of strength this week – mental, physical, emotional etc. However, this could just mean there’ll be biff. Which still makes it a good card.
Bulldogs – Queen of Pentacles – Another Queen! It’s like Mardi Gras in here this week. This one is all nurturing and motherlike. There’s no way this can apply to the Dogs themselves, so I think they need to bring in a positive lady influence who the guys can get everything off their chest to, and then be fresh as daisies.
Cowboys – 5 of Pentacles – The Cowboys have copped the Bad Times card that the Roosters did in the last post. Poor bitches. Even if they muster up a win, it’s gunna be rife with issuuuues behind the scenes. Possibly resulting from everyone missing John John after his little incident. I predict pre-game tears. *sob* BUT HE’S JUST SUCH A SUNSHINEY INFLUENCE *nose blow*
Raiders – 9 of Pentacles – It’s that bloody card of refinement and discipline again. I hope the Raiders have gone through some Ladette to Lady type training this week, and their perfected posture and ability to walk in heels will pay off in their game play. Graaaacefully and graaaaaandly.
Knights – Queen of Cups – Feeeeelings, nothing more than feelings. This Queen is all in touch with her emotions and super spiritual. Exactly what you’d expect from a bunch of guys from Newcastle.
The Knights should do some soul-searching, and possibly introduce a pre-game prayer on the field. All down on one knee etc like in the NFL.
Tigers – 8 of Cups – Somebody is weary, sick of everything and ready to move on. I’m gunna say it’s Robbie Farah. NOOO ROBBIE! Hang in there! I’m sorry I was mean to you in fantasy league! C’mon, I’ll buy you an icecream and then we can go feed the ducks.
Rabbitohs – King of Pentacles – This is the same card the Tigers got in my last post. THIS HAS TO MEAN A WIN. If not, well at least one Bunny is gunna win $2 on a scratchie or something. And I think it will be Beau Champion. You heard it here first.
Sea Eagles – 9 of Wands – DEFENCE! DEFENCE! I say this means the Sea Eagles should be taking a page out of Christina Aguilera’s book and becoming fighters. I can so see Dessie locking the boys in a room and playing Fighter on loop for 5 days, can’t you?
Panthers – Ace of Pentacles – I see this as a seed being planted for future success, and I can only equate this with the youthful presence of Wade Graham and ‘Little Big Man‘ Lachie in the Panthers. GROW BOYS, GROWWWW!
Eels – 2 of Swords – The Eels are kind of sticking their head in the sand. Not wanting to admit the truth etc etc. Ok I have no idea what this means. Let’s just have a break and look at Zeffie for a bit:
Sharks – The Emperor – Order, organisation, authority. Ok, this must refer to this week’s Sharks opponents the Cowboys, coz there’s no way this card is meant for Cronulla. Authority…Sharks. LOLOL *slaps knee*
Storm – 7 of Swords – Ok I can never remember this card so I looked it up:
On the Seven we see a man tiptoeing away from society…He’s taken some swords and seems rather pleased with his successful heist. He gives the impression of having secret, solitary plans. This card sometimes represents the “lone-wolf” style – the desire to run lone and free.
Oh that is so Storm. Lone smug wolves. Not to mention Cam Smith being decidedly wolflike in appearance. Now that is just creepy.
Warriors – Knight of Cups – This guy is a bit…unhinged. He can be super lovely and fab, then just snap and be in the worst mood evs. So basically, the Warriors are me this week.
Titans – 6 of Swords – You know when you don’t really have any problems, but you’re not happy either? That’s this card. The Titans are just getting by. They really should be happy though, coz they’ll be playing the Raiders at home, not in Canberra. Always a plus.
